I elected to take on Christmas dinner for my family this year. My dad took care of the roast (thank goodness, I’m terrible at cooking meat) and I planned and prepared the rest. No surprise, the mashed potatoes were the favorite dish, the squash soup a close second. The meal needed to be gluten-free and dairy-free (with the potatoes that meant setting a portion aside before adding in the cream & butter, for the salad we left topping separate so people could choose cow cheese or goat cheese) and hopefully satisfying for all involved. The feedback was very good and I would happily have this same meal next year as well.
Pressure Cooker Mashed Potatoes
(I used a recipe from America’s Test Kitchen but it isn’t available publicly, this one from Our Best Bites is similar)
Swedish Apple Pie
(This apple pie/crumble recipe is so good that I’m making it again today, two days after Christmas!)
